    This is wonderful, I knew a lot of these tunes already (grewing up with my first PC since 1991), but some were a surprise.
    The second last title is good, and as I heard the name David Whittaker, I was instantly reminded to the flight shooter game “Panther” on Atari 8bit systems. It was one of the very first computer games I played, and though I could never beat it, the in-game song stayed in my brain forever. Later on, with the availibility of internet, Youtube and nostalgia sites, I reloaded the game and played the tune every once in a while.
    I just recently found out the composer of it, which is – David Whittaker. He seemed to have composed a lot of tunes in the 80s and 90s. The one for Supaplex is also something staying in the ear. 🙂
    If you want to hear the tune I write about, either check out the Youtube link or the generated version from the tape on my site.
